Sustainable Management
Hansae Co., Ltd. pursues economical efficiency and environmental green initiatives as a sustainable company.

Reduction Targets for 2029

Hansae implements Environmental management policies as a key pillar of sustainable management, and accordingly sets quantitative targets to reduce the use of electricity, oil, coal, and water, and GHG emissions and adopts specific strategies to meet them. We are planning to decrease GHG emissions by 25%, oil consumption by 50%, water use by 20% and electric power purchase by 5% through 2029 compared to the levels seen in 2019, and are constantly monitoring our performances.

  • Hansae Environmental Policy

    Climate change and global warming have been major risks, increasingly affecting our environment.

    Hansae, as a global garment manufacturer, we have established the environmental management system to reduce environmental risk through the reduction of energy and water use.

    In addition, we established a transparent management system by participating in global sustainability project such as the ‘Carbon Disclosure Project’.
